Campbell honored, 4-H club benefits
Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) will contribute $1,000, through its Volunteer Service Award program, to Cottonwood Saddlers and Livestock 4-H Club in Betty Campbell’s honor to recognize the valuable contributions she has made to the club.
Campbell has been a leader for the Cottonwood Saddlers and Livestock 4-H Club for 38 years where she has directed anywhere from 10 to 50 kids per year. She has taken teams to horse judging contests and horse bowls, and three of her teams have won the state of Idaho competition.
“Betty has shown an extraordinary commitment to the 4-H Club with her 38-years of service,” said Dana Reddington, Idaho Region president. “Wells Fargo team members recognize the importance of supporting the health and vitality of our Idaho communities by sharing their time and talents. Their giving spirits not only help communities but also help us better determine how the company can support and enhance communities.”
Campbell also works in the Cottonwood branch of Wells Fargo.
In its 33rd year, the Wells Fargo Volunteer Service Award program continues to recognize and reward team members for their volunteer efforts with contributions from Wells Fargo to the nonprofit or K-12 school where they volunteer. This year, 241 team members, including Campbell, were awarded a total of $400,000 for their organizations.
Wells Fargo team members are encouraged to nominate their co-workers or themselves to recognize the outstanding efforts of the volunteer and the nonprofit organization. Winners are selected by an internal selection committee, which evaluates the team member’s personal commitment to the organization, effectiveness of their work, and the value of their work to their community.
Wells Fargo makes it easy for team members to get involved through our Wells Fargo Volunteers program. In 2010, Idaho Region team members reported more than 24,000 volunteer hours. They served as mentors, board members, project leaders, fundraisers, educators and more. Wells Fargo also donated $1 million in 2010 to] nonprofits and schools in Idaho.
